I always found it the best way to get assistants into the real work, while
giving the colorist some time to breath fresh air and maybe take a walk
outside the suite... it is good to check out if the real world is still
there sometimes!

By the way, is it a commom practice over there to have assistants all the
time inside the telecine bay? We do have some here, but it is really a
painfully slow process to pick someone and transform him into a colorist
(even more after he is well know by the clients as an assistant).

But I guess there's no other way. Am I wrong? How long do your assistants
take to do their first dailies? Do you usually give them planned lessons or
its on the old "learning on the day-by-day" basis?

Just curious about the way things work outside my small world...
